Greece withdraws its ambassador Andreas Friganas from Russia, sources say.
"This decision was made. The decision was made personally by Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, "a source in the government said, RIA Novosti reported.
According to him, Friganas will return to Athens, and another ambassador will be sent to Moscow.
Recall, in July Greece decided to send two Russian diplomats and to ban the entry of two more diprabotnikov into the country. The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the Greek Ambassador to hand him a note on Moscow's response to the actions of Athens against Russian diplomats. The Greek Foreign Ministry commented on Moscow's response to the expulsion of Russian diplomats, reproaching Russia for its vindictiveness.
